Igoe PA hire provides a 6.7 kW rig with lights & DJ equipment for a huge party near bath.

This was a big old do to celebrate a 21st and a 18th birthday. These guys had one amazing house with it’s own tennis courts which became the ground for the huge marquee.

They had a stage at one end with a bizarre backdrop (see pic).

Sound System Bristol

Firstly they had a live act for which they supplied their own desk. We lent them some mics and d.i’s. Mainly they wanted to play full power psytrance into the early hours and for this we knew they would need a big rig.

The sound system comprised two double 15″ HZ subs , two double 15″ Fane full range cabs driven with two Peavey CS4000 Amps. This totaled 6.7 kW of power!

The lighting rig was two future light DMX scanners, a Martin Atomic 3000 strobe, & two NJD Datamoons.

DJ equipment was in the form of two CDJ1000 MKIII decks, a pair of Technics MK5G & a pioneer DJM600 mixer.

When we picked up the kit the aftermath was a sight to behold – this was obviously a great party !

Igoe PA hire provides a complete sound & lighting solution for a combined birthday celebration held in a marquee near Chepstow, Wales.

Diary 08/09/07

This event was engineered by Ben & Nick

The setting for this party was gorgeous. It was in a clearing within dense forest somewhere in the Wye valley. Nick & I mistakenly pulled into two different fields on the way containing marquees thinking we had arrived only to be met with blank faces. It seemed that everyone in this area was having a party on this rare sunny day. Eventually we arrived. The marquee was beautifully dressed so we carefully went about setting up.

.Marquee

The front of house pa comprised two double 15″ (1000 Watt Eminence Kilomax) HZ subs , two double 15″ towers (600 Watt Fane Colossus 15b600) / 1″ Compresion Driver (Fane CD150) powered by two Peavey CS4000 Amps. This totaled 6.7 kW of power!

Monitoring was achieved through two 350 watt wedges.

We used an Allen & Heath GL2400 desk with ART EQ and DBX comp / Furman Gate & Lexicon effects.

The lighting rig was two future light DMX scanners, a Martin Atomic 3000 strobe, HazerMKII, NJD Datamoons and VRX gladiators. This lot where all controlled via our Martin Freakie lighting console.

We also supplied two CDJ1000 MKIII decks, a pioneer DJM600 mixer and a pair of Technics MK5.

The hog roast was amazing – Nick and I feasted on this with glee. There was a lot of serious drinking going on, not least by the band who did manage to play ok. There repertoire was made up of rock and brit pop anthems through the ages.

Wonderland

After the band we cleared the tables to make way for the disco which rocked. The lights and smoke machine did the job and transformed the tent into a wonderland. All the kids loved it. We hope to work with these guys again – they know how to party.
